Solution: Consider the structure of the amino acid aspartic acid. Indicate the hybridization about each interior atom.

Solution: Consider the structure of the amino acid aspartic acid. Indicate the hybridization about each interior atom.

Problem

Consider the structure of the amino acid aspartic acid. Indicate the hybridization about each interior atom.

Solution

The structure of Aspartic Acid is shown below:

The problem only requires the hybridization of the INTERNAL atoms. This means that all the atoms at the ends of the chain are excluded. The internal atoms are highlighted below.
